"Grandfather and Child" Tsunami survivors in Banda Ache . Northern Sumatra

The road past this man’s house leads straight to the ocean. That’s the path the raging water took, stripping the earth of every living thing-of any sight or sound of anything natural. There were no flowers blooming, no birds left singing. He recounted being on his scooter when he looked to the sea and saw waves that were “as high as the palm trees” coming toward him. He grabbed his grandson and literally outran the oncoming torrent, escaping to the hills that surround this area. A single man with a single child who were very lucky to have survived that day.
